St. Hippolytus Ryme Intrinseca

This little church, another of Dorset's gems, tucked away in a village.  It shares the dedication with only one other church in England, near Hitchen in Hertfordshire.

The original church was built in 1292/3.  The chancel with its lancet windows and most of the nave, with another pair of lancets, survive.  However, the building was considerably altered in the 17c by the addition of a handsome tower with pinnacles and embattled parapet and a porch.  In the chancel and north nave wall, classical 17c windows were installed, one in the form of a trefoil, specifically to light the pulpit.

The simple wagon roof and the uninterrupted view of the chancel is most appealing.  The font cover is dated 1637 and the white and gold coloured organ is early 19c.
